Background Information Light Emitting Diodes (LED) have been around for more than 40 years. Efficiencies and brightness have continued to increase over the years of development. LED lights use 80% less power than incandescent and 50% less power than fluorescent lights, with the same brightness. LED lights last 10 times longer than fluorescent and 50-100 times longer than incandescent lights. LED lights will last at least 12 years in a retail store environment. LED lights don’t flicker & are very directional, unlike incandescent and fluorescent lights. Lighting quality is comparable to a cool white compact fluorescent light. LED lights produce little heat, do not generate RF interference as fluorescent lights do, operate in hot or cold environments.
Justification Charts Life Span & Energy Consumption of LED vs. Incandescent Incandescent 70W Indoor Flood Bulb (R30) 10W E27 LED Bulb Life Span – longevity of light bulb Standard Life 1000 hours Standard Life 50,000 hours Number of Bulbs Used Over 50,000 hour Life 501 Bulb Cost Over 50,000 hour Life $364.50 (50 bulbs at $7.29 each) $64.75 Electricity Usage (kW-h) over 50,000 hour Life 3,500 kW-h500 kW-h Cost of Electricity Over 50,000 hour Life at $0.14/kW-h US Average $490.00$70.00 Total Cost Over 50,000 hour Life $854.50$134.75 TOTAL SAVINGS Over 50,000 hour Life of E27 10W LED Bulb $719.75 per bulb LED Lighting Savings Analysis for Retail Stores 70WExisting Bulb in Retail Store Fixture 10.8WLED Bulb Wattage Dissipated 59.20WWattage Saved Per Bulb When Changed to LED 4,380 hoursRetail Store Operation – 12 hrs/day, 7 days/week $0.14Cost per kW-h Charged By Power Company 259.30 kW-hPower Consumption Saved Per Bulb $36.30Annual Energy Savings Per Bulb 100Estimated Bulbs Lighted Per Retail Store Location $3,630Annual Power Consumption Saved Per Location $7.29 eachCost of Current Incandescent Bulb Being Used $64.75 eachCost of LED Bulb (1000 pcs. minimum) $6,475Initial Investment for LED Replacement Bulbs $2,916Annual Current Incandescent Replacement Cost $800.00Estimated BTU A/C Savings Per Location $871.00Estimated 1 st Year Investment Per Location $7,346Estimated Ongoing Annual Savings Per Location 50Estimated Number of Locations Per Retail Chain $367,300Estimated Continuing Annual Savings Using E27 10W LED Bulbs to Replace Incandescent Bulbs
Additional Benefits Tax break permitted per Title 24 for 50% reduction in energy consumption Greatly reduced insurance risk for employees climbing ladders to replace burned-out incandescent bulbs Reduced heating within retail and office locations Reduced usage of air conditioning No risk of accidental burns when used in desk lamps and fixtures Large long term and continuing ROI Additional LED lighting styles being finalized – strip lighting, shelf lighting, track lighting, flashlights
